Ladies and gentlemen, roll up, roll up and get ready to feast your eyes. You won’t want to miss this fabulous and spectacular event !
When we launched AALL & Create and started this adventure we told you that we were here to make you dream but also to inspire you to create. After our online workshops and our exclusive products, today we are inviting you all to take part in our…
...INTERNATIONAL TOURNAMENT OF ART & CRAFT ITAC 2017
Over the past few weeks we have been working frantically behind the scenes to prepare a tournament that is not like any other, one that is original and stuffed full of interesting things to discover and creative delights to enjoy. We wanted to think big so it’s a tournament on a global scale, and that’s important to AALL & Create because one of our key objectives is to bring together the many communities of artists around the world under one roof to allow people to discover different styles, techniques and ways of working and to enable an exchange of ideas and break down barriers between some of those communities.
The aim of this tournament is to inspire you, so that you not only enjoy yourself but so that everyone can enjoy participating in something creative together.
Over the course of five weeks, between the August, 11th and September, 08th, our five teams, including international guest artists representing the five continents of the world, will be setting a series of five challenges, each with its own theme, set of instructions, tips, tutorials and masterclasses to inspire you.
After this there will be the grand final, which will be the sixth and final challenge the September, 15th.
It will be a friendly and laidback competition and only one deadline at the end of the competition September, 24th – the most important thing will be to have fun !
How to take part ;
Create a piece of artwork following the theme and instructions given by the artists for each challenge.

I am a Polish scrapbooker, mixed media artist, designer, teacher and owner of the company 13 arts. My biggest passion is creating using different mediums, I love experimenting and seeking out original effects. I mainly create layouts, canvases and art journal pages, but I also love to create things on a bigger scale and customise home decorations.
My work is recognisable for being rich in textures (especially using microbeads), and having many layers and lots of detail. I don’t have as much time for crafting as I would like to, but creating is my life, and my getaway.
Over last few years I’ve been a designer in international teams and I’ve cooperated with stores, kit clubs and challenge sites. Currently I mostly teach mixed media techniques, design paper collections and other products, make videos and live shows with online classes.
You can mostly see my work on the 13 arts and Scrapberry websites.
Alberto Juarez (Spain) is part of Graphic45's team and since 2012, he has been part of the educators' group of Prima marketing. He has taught workshops both in Spanish stores, fairs and events in Spain as well as ArtVenture of Prima Marketing in Anaheim (California) in the CHA. His latest adventures have been launched as a product designer as his three collections of paper for Scrapbooking, or along with his mates of "Carrotcake” a line of paintings, sprays and mediums for mixed media with Acrylicos Vallejo.
His works are internationally known and his passion for scrapbook makes it one of the one of the references in scrapbook and his web vintageodyssey.net accumulates thousands of monthly visits.
